UB the world is made up of two kinds of dogs; outdoor and indoor and a dog is happiest when he know just what he is. In my case I know I'm an indoor dog:D.

Drew, you're the man for holding out this long. A couple of months ago I started to focus more on sealing up the cabin, and getting the heaters working. There's no way I'm tough enough to run topless in this weather.

I put my hardtop on sometime in October for the :princess: (and myself) on the Spooky Night Run. I must be getting old, not too interested in getting snowed on without a hard top/hard doors/heat (even if marginal) these days...

I put mine on friday before Thanksgiving, but only because that's the first I could find.

Really, my commute to work isn't that bad, but trying to drive up to the mountains is a different story.

No hard top for me! I still have my pakistan top on though. I am going to paint my hard top this winter, so it won't be going on at all. I still haven't tried my new bimini top from Ehsan yet either, so maybe I'll pop that sucker on for the snow run. ;)

So did you score a hardtop?

I put my hardtop on in the fall. Five years ago. Took it off shortly thereafter and it has lived on sawhorses since.

wimp.

Mine when back on just before Halloween, but my heater doesn't work (and a Tacoma to drive on days like today).

If you don't get it done today and need a hand, lemme know.

I'm still softtop, but I don't really count with my metal doors, power windows, power door locks, air conditioning, carpet, cloth seats, sunroof, and stuff like that do I?

Ahhh, didn't get the top on just yet, the weekend still looks promising. I have been running around in a bikini top for a while... doesn't that conjure up a few images!

:hill:

Down Jacket has been getting the nod a lot lately.

Shaun,
Your still around. Happy Holidays Dude. As you get older you will realize that riding without the top increases the shrinkage as the additional winters add on. Just ask Crash :D

Seems like you have a choice.
Your top can gain a certain hardness.
Or you can.

Put the top on two weeks ago, did not want the truck sitting out in the snow. Doors went on too just to keep it from freezing the windows, that is my biggest worry about the soft top. No garage for the Chameleon :(

Leinie, we do have a little advantage ;) but then again so do they :rolleyes:

Bumping this up just to say my hard top went back on yesterday. It had been a mild fall and I thought it would go through the winter but it is now too cold for me to be running the soft top. Hopefully it is a short winter:D.

I'm still topless.

I would probably throw the hardtop on, but can't lift it myself. Good thing I have a warm parka and a bus heater. :hill:

I took my new 78 40 out while it was snowing on Sunday. It felt like I had the top off...snow was coming right through my janky 1980's installed sun roof. Time to get out the silicon! :hill:

Squishy!

I just put the doors back on my red truck after yesterday driving in 5 degrees... Brrrrrrr.... heaters don't do much at ANY speed...

Still running a softtop and soft doors...

Of course, that means I am running them in the garage these days... sniff...

Bummer....I broke down and put the top and doors on because it will be cold tomorrow and snowing. So sad to see it all bundled up! :lmao:

I cracked my window the other day cause the heated seat had my heiney too hot.

If I get a 40 next summer I'll give it a go for the winter and see how tough I am. My money is on "not very" though.
